O’Reilly: No More ‘Fanatical Ideologues’ on My Show

Let’s Diagram a Donald Trump Interview Answer

During an interview the other day, Donald Trump was asked a very simple question: Who are your heroes? He gave the most bizarre, convoluted, meandering answer that there really should be a Nobel prize to any English teacher who can diagram it. … [Read more...]

CBO Gives Horrifying Result from Repealing Obamacare

The Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation have released a report requested by the Senate Minority Leader (Harry Reid at the time) about the result of repealing Obamacare.

Wingnuts: Hey, Let’s Try 100 Days of Prayer This Time

The Bible tells Christians to "pray unceasingly," but a lot of self-declared "prophets" and charismatic Christian leaders love to hold shorter declarations of days of prayer.

NRA TV Whitesplains Martin Luther King to John Lewis

Trump Wanted to Build Hotel in What He Now Calls a Crime-infested Hellhole

So we've all heard by now that Donald Trump told civil rights icon John Lewis he should pay more attention to his own district, which includes the city of Atlanta, because it was in “horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested)."

Poet Writes Terrible Ode to Donald Trump

So a Scottish poet named Joseph Charles MacKenie decided to write a poem for the inauguration of Donald Trump. It plays on Trump's Scottish roots and refers to him by his name in (I assume) Gaelic, Domhnall. The last line of each stanza is, creepily, intended to be recited by the audience, but this will not apparently be read at the inauguration itself. … [Read more...]

Here Comes the Obamacare Replacement Bait and Switch

Donald Trump said the other day that his still-unrevealed replacement plan for Obamacare would provide "insurance for everybody." Now other Republicans are saying that he misspoke when he said that. What he meant to say was access to insurance for everybody. … [Read more...]

Why No Form of Protest is Ever the Right Way to Do It

Every year on Martin Luther King Day, far too many white people share happy, peaceful quotes from King. We see him as the nice civil rights activist, as opposed to that extremist Malcolm X. This is mostly a fiction, as is the notion that white people will ever accept even the mildest form of protest. … [Read more...]

Putin Gives Greatest Quote Ever

Russian strongman Vladimir Putin says it's ridiculous to claim that the Russians would gather blackmail material on "every American billionaire" and he offered up what is quite possibly the most inadvertently hilarious quote I've ever seen: … [Read more...]
